Jersey Opera House, Jersey

In 1865 Henry Cornwall built Jersey a new theatre which he named Cornwallís Royal Amphitheatre and Circus. This was located in Gloucester Street, St Helier where the Opera house stands today. During his short ownership of the new theatre Cornwall employed actor William Wybert Rousby as its manager. In 1868 Mr Rousby bought the theatre re-naming it Theatre Royal.
